Is it me or do we just keep trying to cram more and more into the weekend?! This weekend was no different. I had to take Friday off because our babysitter was off and E’s preschool was closed. That gave me a chance to head home to the small town I grew up in for a SHORT visit. So the kids and I packed it up and took off.
We got to see our some cousins. The kids are so fun at this age when you get them together. The girls are really starting to interact and I just love watching them. Seriously, they are hilarious.
While the kids played, I got to sneak away and get a run in. In 6 miles, I can run my entire town, see my relatives, run into a high school friend and stop to visit my dad; that’s a productive run.
Afterwards, E and I took off to go see my brother. E had so much fun walking the lot. Especially when it means getting up close at personal with a bulldozer.
We spent Saturday getting a quick run and gym session in before cute chaos (toddler soccer). This soccer season (if you can call it that) has been crazy. E will go from being so disinterested that he would rather sit on the bleachers than play to the kid that breaks away from the pack, all the way to the goal, three times!! S and I just couldn’t believe it.
Sunday started off promising, I got my run in early, 9 miles before 8 am felt great. What wasn’t so amazing was our attempt at church this week; not so cute chaos. I know I’m not supposed to wish the days away but today was one of those days where I thought that age 7 or 8 is looking better every day. I guess not every day can be a good day in the world of parenthood.
Family nap time seems to have reset the toddler and we are back on a good track and thinking about the week ahead. I’m looking forward to spending sometime in the pool this week and enjoying as much time outside as we possibly can.
Dinner this week includes: Crock-pot buffalo chicken, toasted ravioli, Grilled chicken and green beans, and probably some soup.
OH…wait…I forgot, make sure you stay tuned….pretty awesome announcement with something in it for you soon!
How does your week look? What are you looking forward to this week?
